SANTA ANA (AP) — A Cal­i­for­nia State Bar judge is rec­om­mend­ing an Or­ange County pros­e­cu­tor ac­cused of im­prop­erly with­hold­ing ev­i­dence be sus­pended from prac­tic­ing law for at least a year.

The Or­ange County Reg­is­ter re­ports State Bar Judge Yvette Roland, in a writ­ten opin­ion filed this week, rec­om­mended Deputy District At­tor­ney San­dra Lee Nas­sar be placed on a three-year pro­ba­tion, in­clud­ing a min­i­mum one-year sus­pen­sion, for her mis­con­duct dur­ing a 2013 child-abuse trial.

Roland cited what she says was Nas­sar’s “lack of in­sight and un­der­stand­ing re­gard­ing her own mis­con­duct.”

Or­ange County District At­tor­ney’s Of­fice spokes­woman Michelle Van Der Lin­den says the Cal­i­for­nia Supreme Court is re­view­ing the de­ci­sion. She says Nas­sar will make a de­ci­sion on whether to ap­peal within the next 30 days.
